[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with n
years during this war the syrian air force has controlled the skies over syria. they have pounded rebel positions, killing civilians and rebel fighters. throughout the course of this nearly two-year long conflict. it is one of the key reasons the assad regime is still in power. something seems to be changing in syria because the last 24 hours rebels shot down two syrian aircraft. one hell copper and one jet plane. now in the past the rebels have been able to shoot down helicopters but this is the first time they shot down a jet plane and there are reports rebels have access to some type of new anti-aircraft weapon. possibly shoulder to air missile. it is not clear where they got it from or how many they have. some speculation may be that they confiscated it from the syrian military when they took over syrian bases in northern syria. it is also possible that outside countries like qatar or turkey actually supplied these weapons to the syrian rebels especially since it takes some training and some practice to fire a missile and take a plane out of the air. there is some speculation this i
next door in syria. you have a different government in egypt and the morrisey government is reacting differently than perhaps the mubarak government did before. >> what's the short-term solution then? >> well, i think the danger for israel for example, it has a right of self-defense, but obviously if it decides to return ground troops to gaza the optics there work against israel in a much -- in a region that now is governed far more by populism than by authoritarianism. i think it has to make sure that its response is aggressive, tries to deal with the threat to israel's people, but doesn't go too far. >> let's talk about the united states' potential role. health care was president obama's defining achievement for his first term. when we look at a second term will the president look at middle east peace, the road map to peace might this be his big deal for his second term? does it need to be? >> i think that's part of the motivation here. you know, you have coming up the palestinian authority which of course controls the west bank but not gaza is preparing to try to move toward enhan

fears that israel, by far our closest ally in the middle east could be drawn into syria's civil war. now that its tanks struck a syrian artillery launcher after a stray mortar shell flew into the golan heights. the fighting from syria reaching turkey for the second straight day. leland vittert is live in jerusalem with the latest. leland? >> reporter: rick, right now the big concern in terms of the civil war is just how close the syrians civil war is getting to its borders, namely with turkey and also here with israel. the airstrikes we have watched over the past couple of days along the turkish border were shots from turkey, meaning that is how close the planes were and the turks for their part have promised to shoot down any syrian air force jet that ends up inside turkey airspace. that of course could have a whole cascading range of effects going down. the air force for the syrian government is really the trump card as they have been able to act with impunity. although rebels have gotten better organized the past couple weeks they're nowhere near the level, france, britain or the unit

[explosion] bill: that is a fierce line of weaponry there. leland vittert live on the ground there in jerusalem with the latest and what is happening now. leland, hello. >> reporter: good morning, bill. the big concern right now regionally is just how close syrian civil war is getting to its borders. the video that we are seeing of those aerial bombardments by the sir union air force is coming from turkey which is now threatened to shoot down any syrian planes that end up inside its airspace. that could cause a whole host of issues and ripple effects going on. air force is still the syrian regime's trump card going forward. they have been able to bomb with impunity. rebels are trying to get more organized. britain and france are denying giving them anti-aircraft missiles to. bill: what is turkey going to do with the refugees, leland? >> reporter: it is becoming an increasing problem. you can see at the same time these bombings happen, tens of thousand of people fleeing across
further the instability in the surrounding nations. >> and josh, take us to the north. lebanon and syria playing critical roles as well? >> absolutely. let's touch on these. zoom in the video up to lebanon. lebanon has a long history of racked by violence. recently there was an intelligence chief killed in a bombing inside lebanon. also one more thing that you should understand when you think about lebanon and that is the role of hezbollah. i believe we have video of hezbollah here. always a power strug inside lebanon involving hezbollah and the united states and other countries consider a terrorist organization. it's fiercely opposed to israel, any conflict between israel and palestinians can further the instability inside lebanon. finally, maybe last thing what we're talking about here, absolutely not the least, zoom to the east in this map, we're going over to syria which has been one of the biggest stories in the world since march of last year. there's a war raging there. and the opposition has been giving new figures lately about this war. the opposition has been saying that now as
syria. you saw that. this video reportedly shows what rebels say is a newly acquired surface to air missile hitting, wait for it again, hitting the helicopter. it was slowed down. you can see it, the massive flame, the smoke, the moment of impact and the chopper ended up just crashing into a field. meanwhile, activists say at least 90 people were killed today in the latest fighting in syria. >>> today has been round two for u.n. ambassador susan rice facing her critics on capitol hill. and so far it is a replay of yesterday. the meeting that rice requested with the senators did not go well. apparently bringing her no closer to gaining their support, if and when rice were to be nominated for secretary of state. >> i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a political role at the height of a contentious presidential election campaign. >> rice has been under intense criticism for publicly repeating cia talking points that the attack that killed four americans in benghazi, in september 11th, may have been connected to protests ag
for governments to ban autonomous weapons outright. they point to syria. what robots could do in a conflict like that. >> because the weapons are emotionless, they could serve as a perfect tool for a dictator, who would not have to worry about the danger of a human soldier turning on him if fired -- if ordered to fire on his own civilians. a robot would not do that. >> and chris lawrence for us, with us at the pentagon right now. it's fascinating. what if something were to go haywire and all these killer robots were kind of meant to take over? what does the pentagon think about all this? >> they're concerned, you know. it's tough because the technology doesn't exist yet. your kind of forecasting what your concerns may be 20 years from now. what this directive does is say there's got to be some inherent fail safes built in. if something were to go wrong we have to minimize that damage and cut it off immediately. it's a message to the weapons developers out there not to build these systems because the pentagon is not going to buy them unless they fall into really strict parameters. >> it's fascina
as well and that is syria. because we are learning that, you know, there are -- there are 11,000 people leaving as refugees to turkey and jordan, that was the headline that crossed this morning. now there is some discussion in the international community about whether or not bashar al-assad is better than what you might get, you know, if he is deposed, if he is pushed out of the country, you know, there have been so many human atrocities under his watch, that's a difficult, you know, that's ao difficult thin a difficult thing to even put out there. what are your thoughts? >> well, you know, there are wars and conflicts where no participant is somebody whose victory would be beneficial to the united states, and this could well be done of them. look, this has been going on for 18 months, and for 18 months i think we've been waiting for the administration, for our intelligence services, for somebody to identify leaders of the opposition that we could trust with american assistance, maybe up to and including -- i'm not aware of a single opposition leader that anybody has advocated that some
. the worry everybody's always had about syria is not that it's going to implode, but it's going to explode. because all of the factors, all the ethnic groups, all the tribes, they're all in existence in every one of those other cups in that same -- countries in that same region. the whole region is getting very unstable, and with no economic prospects and an iran which is busy stirring the pot. megyn: wow. very glad you were here, kt. >> thank you. megyn: i have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot of you in the coming days. >>> two other big stories we are following at this hour. right now we're waiting for remarks from president obama here in new york. he's here touring the devastation as a result of hurricane sandy and getting an update on recovery efforts. the president visiting staten island at this moment, one of the areas where thousands of people are still without power, many, many are homeless. more than two weeks after the storm, a lot of folks wondering where the help is. we will bring you the president's comments as he makes them. >>> plus, we are also getting new details o
sending missile parts to syria. we've talked about the relationship between north korea and the middle east before. this is the first we've heard of this and this happened a couple of months ago. what do you make of it, what is the involvement we need to watch. >> this is a continuation of a trend because the north koreans have been not only selling missiles but nuclear reactors. the reactor destroyed in 2007, that was a north korean reactor. iran paid for it. the united states has not been paying enough attention to north korean proliferation. jenna: there is so much to watch, gordon how do you prioritize. >> that is the real problem, the crises is come one right after the other. it will be very difficult for the administration or even a bunch of countries to be able to deal with this because there is too much happening all at once. jenna: it certainly feels that way. you give us a lot of thins to think about. it's good to have you on set. thank you. appreciate it very much. jon: a couple of icons of the american lunch box could be no more. we might be seeing the last of the twinninge
